The Digital Humanities operates as a dynamic ecology that includes humanities computing, (new) media studies, technology studies, and digital pedagogies.  Like any ecology, the field is dynamic and unpredictable, resulting in both challenges and opportunities. Knight’s talk will take us on a tour of the various landscapes of the ecology, showcasing a range of projects and their relation to traditional Humanities research. Her talk will reveal the benefits of cultivating the field as ecology, including its impact on scholarly publishing and the public role of the Humanities.
